Forsythe-based Improvisation
YES YES YES. Let's welcome Spenser back home. You want to do this…
This class emphasizes awareness, presence, and potential through methodologies developed and researched by Spenser in his time with The Forsythe Company. It’s an opportunity to explore mindfulness, real-time decision making, and a sense of self in relation to others. Come dance, sweat, and learn!

SATURDAY May 27th // 1-3pm // $12 drop-in
